Welcome to Magazine Monday. Today’s we’ve got TV Guide from February 11-17, 1961. In case you missed my previous TV Guide/Disneyland posts, you can visit them here: Why Disney Changed his mind about TV – October 1954 (link) and the four issue series “Disney Album” from January 1955 (link).
“Dancing in Disneyland”
The “Bell Telephone Hour” was presenting a special show this week “The Sounds of America” filmed and videotaped entirely on location at Disneyland!
Here’s the page that shows the listing for Friday night at 9:00pm. The Bell Telephone Hour was in Color since its TV debut in 1959. Good thing the Twilight Zone (late into Season one) is on at 10:00pm, there's an excellent performance by Jack Klugman that you won’t want to miss.
This looks like a spectacular show. Good luck finding it. A search on the web came up pretty dry, but I’m working on a lead. If anyone has a copy or can get one, let me know.
My favorite TV Teletype’s, this is the “New York” version found in the front of the guide. Hollywood is in the back.
Here are a couple nice photos of what ladies looked like in 1961. The articles are kind of dry, let me know if you have an interest in the rest of the articles and I’ll post them later.
The TV Teletype “Hollywood” version has lots of fun information. Gunsmoke will expand to an hour; it was a half hour show at first?
